Project Management

Entrepreneurs, company executives and organisational chiefs battle with the daily responsibilities of managing an organisation. No wonder more and more are turning to dedicated IT project management teams to oversees key projects, from conception to completion. With our specialist knowledge and years of experience in the field, PROW can help you achieve a successful result for your project, large or small.

We work with you and take you through a proven six-stage process, from start to finish:

Stage 1 – Definition

First, we listen to you. We get a clear understanding of what the project is and what you want it to achieve. Then – and only then – do we turn to putting it down in writing. Defining the goals, objectives, scope, risks, issues, budget, timescale and approach is critical to success. Only when there is full agreement does work begin.

Stage 2 – Initiation

A very important stage. It sets the terms of reference for how the project will be run. It is here the business case is declared, the scope of the project decided and expectations of the players set. Time wisely spent on this stage together with good communications bode well for success.

Stage 3 – Planning

Another important stage. It can be tempting to rush forward with the work but having a strong, robust and clear plan in place will serve your business or organisation best. It will help you save time, money and unnecessary problems.

Stage 4 – Execution

This is where the work is carried out. Implementation is given a high level of focus and concentration so tasks are completed by the right people, with the right skills and resources, and in the right order.

Stage 5 – Monitoring & Control

Here is where we keep a close eye on everything to ensure it is running as it should be. You receive regular reporting of progress, issues and risks to stay up to speed with what’s happening. We also review against the business case to check performance against planned delivery.

Stage 6 – Closure

Every successful project requires a clear finish point. That way everyone knows where they are. There is review and reporting to highlight the results, the good points and areas for improvement. The project is ended with a formal sign-off.
